Civics
Tutor: Michelle Griep
Email: michellegriep@gmail.com
Length: Full Year Class Period: Wednesday, period 1
Description: Webster's defines civics as the study of civic affairs and the duties and rights of citizenship. Civic affairs are how our government, economic, and political systems are supposed to operate as defined by our founding fathers. In light of this, we will focus on the Constitution for the first half of the year. For the second half, we'll study branches of government, political parties, foreign policy, opinion/truth/propaganda in politics, and citizen responsibilities such as voting and how that works.

Note:  No new students may add to this class at semester.  This is a full year course.

Covid - 19 Contingency Plan - In the event that we are forced to transition to online classes at any point in the school year, this class will continue to be held. 

Tutor: Michelle Griep is a historical fiction author with an avid interest in government affairs. She has been a homeschool mom for the past twenty years, many of which have been spent tutoring other students and teaching classes in a variety of subject areas.
